I recently made a trip to Ultimate Electronics for a new progressive scan DVD player, upon getting the DVD player I wanted, the salesperson immediately started asking the "you want fries with that" questions. Upon realizing that I have way more Home Theater equipment than I have rooms in the house (I just won a sales contest in which I was given $9000 worth of home theater equipment on top of what I already had) the pitch started moving towards Voltage Stabalizers and other equipment to clean and increase the power coming from my home outlets. What I am wondering is if these items have any value or if it is just another thing that they want you to think you need when in reality gains are small if any. Any opinions or experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
